||Whiplash Helped With Chiropractic
An article published in the Journal of Orthopedic
Medicine in 1999 pointed out the superiority of chiropractic care for
patients suffering from long term whiplash.
The authors of the article noted that a previous study had shown
that 26 of 28 patients, or 93 percent, of patients with chronic whiplash
benefited from chiropractic care. In
the authors own study, they interviewed 100 consecutive chiropractic
referrals of patients with chronic whiplash.
Their results also showed that of the 93 patients who remained in
the study, 69 of them, or 74 percent, found improvement.
The researchers concluded their opening comments with the
statement, “The results from this study provide further evidence that
chiropractic is an effective treatment for chronic whiplash symptoms.”
